Argentina Reopening Updates
The Argentine government recently announced that they are now welcoming travelers back to the country. Those who want to venture to Argentina during the cold winter months in the northern hemisphere should be able to access Northern Patagonia after December 4th and all of Southern Patagonia after December 15th.
